Effect of expulsion from Fiji not yet determined says Radio NZ.




More on Fiji-NZ saga on the link below.

http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/stories/2008/12/29/124386865879

Did you know whilst the standoff between the two countries continues, the ordinary people
of Fiji will never be able to enjoy what our Pacific Island neighbors are enjoying .

To name a few:





  1. Seasonal workers scheme - where workers from the Pacific Island Nations are brought in to NZ to work in factories, vineyards, fruit picking etc. In saying this there are however some Fiji Muslim Indians who have been fortunate enough to have had an ongoing arrangement with the Meat Industries as they are hired as Halal Slaughterman. These people are not really affected by this crisis.


  2. Immigration Transit Visa for Pacific Islands - Fiji is not in the list of those Pacific Nations that had been given the green light to transit NZ without Transit Visa.. This was issued early this year.


Just some food for thoughts.





Have a great New Year & God Bless Fiji.

The Fiji/NZ saga deepens as reported on NZ Herald.

Check this link for an update on the above topic.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/politics/news/article.cfm?c_id=280&objectid=10549611

One wonders whether it is indeed a 'tug of war'....???

It appears to be very messy at this point. This certainly is not an 'Ideology' blue print but one of 'Trial & Error'.

Those that suffer will be the ordinary people of Fiji both locally & offshore but more so those that are at the Peripheral end.

May God Bless Fiji this Christmas & the New Year.

Follow 'The Fiji - NZ Diplomatic debate' Is it a stalemate now??

Check out the link below which records some very ineresting debate on the above topic.

http://globalvoicesonline.org/2008/12/17/fiji-new-zealand-bloggers-debate-diplomatic-row/

Though we do not wish to be a part of the 'political turmoil' one cannot help but observe the 'twists & turns' thats unfolding before us.

The experts are keenly watching on both sides & assessing the saga. For those of us that are on the other side of the 'fence from Fiji' cannot help but lament on the deepening of crisis as it seems & relationships dithering before our very eyes. Our questions are : when will all these saga come to an end???

We would like to see our families back home in Fiji regardless of what ethnic background they are from to once again enjoy the freedom they once use to have.

The impact of whats happening back in Fiji on Fiji people who resides offshore are immense to say the least. One is almost so scared to make comments to another in the street for fear of being ostracized from ones community or let alone be taken straight to the army camp when one lands in Fiji as has been the case.

For this Christmas, we will hold that 'Lit Candle out' for all our families back in Fiji who are suffering & are unable to give their loved ones a 'Special Christmas & New Year'.

We love you all & will hold you dear to our hearts this Christmas & May all your dreams & aspirations come true for the future.

On final note:

If we may cite from the autobiography of The Late Former President John F. Kennedy of USA as written by the experts quoted below, at:

His Inaugural Address offered the memorable injunction: "Ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country." As President, he set out to redeem his campaign pledge to get America moving again. His economic programs launched the country on its longest sustained expansion since World War II; before his death, he laid plans for a massive assault on persisting pockets of privation and poverty.

An Alternative treatment to Cancer says John Hopkins...(excerpt from an email circulating)


Bula all,

Plse read –it may help you.

Excellent article. Pass it on.
AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY . Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins 1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size. <> 2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime. 3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours. 4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors. 5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. 6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc. 7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs. 8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumour size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumour destruction. 9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications. 10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites. 11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply. WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON: a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt. b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved. c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer. d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C). e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it. 12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup. 13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells. 14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells. 15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life. 16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells. (PLEASE FORWARD IT TO PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT) This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life.
